Facing the Storm

Doug Hawes-Davis is a co-founded High Plains Films in 1992. Since then, he has collaborated on nearly 30 documentaries. His most recent film is All the Labor, the story of the Austin, Texas roots rock band, The Gourds.

The bison is an icon of the Great Plains with a history that predates the arrival of humans in North America. Since their arrival, the 10,000-plus year relationship between humans and bison has been tumultuous and grown increasingly complex in modern times following the animal's near extinction coinciding with America's western expansion.
